Tom Zummer, a short film: , just
among those liminal moments among which speaking might falter and begin,
just the memory of the future perfect (Alix Rouboud), I don't want to give
anything away (there's nothing to give away) -

a short film:

four sonnets

three meditations with kemanche,
transfigured with amplitude normalization
with heavy hiss reduction
with reverberation

so that the speech comes through,
so that saying is unhindered
with encumbrance of speaker or speaking
with encumbrance of speech or song

unwrap the words like young tendrils,
unharboring worlds and secret assignations
molecular and other distinctions of quality
traversing phenomena and quality

remembering and releasing the form
virtual meditating, moment of almost form
